Sparkle Announces 2 GB GeForce GT 220 Graphics Card

SPARKLE Computer Co., Ltd., the professional VGA card manufacturer and supplier, today announced the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card the first GT220 graphics card on market with 2GB video memory configuration, bringing incredible 3D power to mainstream gamers.

Based on NVIDIA’s next generation GT216 architecture, the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card adopt innovative unified architecture, dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs. Built upon technologies such as NVIDIA Lumenex Engine, providing support for DirectX 10.1 Shader Model 4.0, NVIDIA Quantum Effects technology for physics computation and GigaThread Technology for extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.
oday‘s game, such as Crysis2, Stalker: Call Of Pripyat, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, they normally use a large number of bump texture, transparent texture to describe faces of characters and render realistic gaming scenes, so these games put higher demands on the capacities of video memory. The current situation demands at least 512 MB video memory to run these games. Compared with ordinary GeForce GT 220 graphics cards on market with 1GB video memory, the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card comes with incredible large 2GB DDR2 video memory, making them to be first batch of GT 220 graphics cards in the world with 2GB video memory.

The SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card is equipped with exquisitely made low-speed cooling fan with low working noise.The cooling fan uses high-density aluminum cooling fins which dramatically raise the heat dissipation area and the thermal performance. Helped with the strong R&D team, SPARKLE also extends the service life of the cooling fins by doing treatment on the fins' surface to prevent the oxidation.

The capacitors are key factor of power supply on the system and it has great impact on system stability. At present, solid capacitors and electrolytic capacitors both store electricity and discharge it when needed. According to factual test, any operation under high frequency and temperature, solid capacitors are able to supply more stable current than electrolytic capacitors and strengthen longer lifespan. Solid capacitors contain zero risk of leaking or exploding. The SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card uses all solid capacitor as a true factor of products quality.

Experience the vivid DX10.1 gaming graphics at fluent frame rates, or go beyond traditional 3D graphics and experience GPU-accelerated NVIDIA PhysX gaming effects, Stereoscopic 3D, and lightning fast video and image processing. All you need is the SPARKLE GeForce GT 220 2GB Graphics Card with full DirectX 10.1 and full Shader Model 4.1 support, delivering unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects. Fully integrated support for HDMI 1.3a including xvYCC,Deep color and 7.1 digital surround sound.

I tested my old Visiontek 2400HD PCI on windows 7, slow as hell, but it works. I think the 2400hd is dying anyway, but it worked. But to answer your question directly, yes a GT220 works with windows 7 just fine, even with games.

it sure is handy to have 2Gb VRAM when opening many² hi-res images in Photoshop CS4.
a 512Mb card only manage to open <50 hi-res images. OpenGL acceleration = ON

but for gaming? nope

Got a X850XTPE running win7 - runs games too!!

Hahahaha.... That card with 2GB of memory? Why? Why would you do this? I'd like to meet the designer of this card and 'bitch slap' em. What an ass. :shadedshu

With a little more RAM, we could install Windows XP on it and run it from GPU directly.

Or you could sell it to idiots and use the extra money you made to snort a line of coke from a whores ass.

The only possible use would be as a cheap CAD card. Otherwise, entirely useless.

lol i doubt it. what are you going to work on that needs 2 gigs of ram on a card that would take 4 days to chew through? :p

Nah, this card could handle CAD easily. And render size determines the memory amount. The 16 shader cards accelerate CAD faster than a cpu, let alone a 64 shader card.

But even as a poor man's CAD card, it's still a very niche market, and almost a waste of a SKU.
